A Collect for the Sixteenth Day of Lent
“For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world and forfeit his soul?”
Lord of life, who set a visible example for us in taking up your cross, guide us into acknowledging those things we seek that cause us to lose ourselves, and give us the wisdom to crucify them and to follow you. We ask this in thy name, to whom, with the Father and Holy Spirit, be all honor and glory, now and forever. Amen.
